Kevin Harvick backed UFC fighter taking on Holly Holm in Las Vegas


If you’re going to be in Las Vegas for NASCAR’s race weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, you’ll more than likely be able see Sprint Cup driver Kevin Harvick at a UFC fight the night before the Kobalt 400.

That’s because Harvick owns KHI Management, which represents UFC fighter Miesha Tate. It was announced Tuesday that Tate is in the co-main event of UFC 197 at the MGM Grand which will decide the bantamweight title.

Tate will be fighting Holly Holm, who became the first fighter to win world titles in boxing and MMA after defeating Ronda Rousey in November, handing her the first loss of her career.

Tate, nicknamed “Cupcake,” is a native of Tacoma, Washington and has a 17-5 record.
